Disco, Star Wars and Mickey Mouse!

This week's cakes were all very different in their theme. It started off with an R2D2 cake for Brianna who was turning 11.

I have made this cake before and it is a lot of fun to create. It is a milk chocolate and caramel layered mudcake with milk chocolate ganache and fondant covering. If there are any Star Wars fans reading this, I hope I have managed to re-create R2D2 closely.

Natalie who is turning 14 today requested a Mickey Mouse Face cake. This involved A LOT of black buttercream, I would love to see the mouths of the birthday guests after they have eaten this birthday cake!!

Mickey Mouse is moist butter cake with buttercream icing.

The next cake is the first 3 tier cake that I have made. Robyn is turning 40 and is celebrating with a 70's / disco themed party. Her sister ordered this cake for her.

Three flavours make up this huge cake. The bottom tier is dark chocolate mudcake, the middle tier is caramel mudcake and the top tier is milk chocolate mudcake. It is a really heavy cake and I just hope I can deliver it in one piece later on!!

The last order for the weekend is for a lovely lady who is celebrating her Hen's Day today. I am making her wedding cake and cupcakes in a few weeks time. The theme for the Hen's Day is everything pink. I think these cupcakes fit that theme quite well!

Earlier this week the school fete was on and I made some disney cookies for the cake stall. I have only used these cookie cutters a couple of times, but they are my favourite. 

I am going to relax for the rest of the day and then it is back to baking again tomorrow. 

Enjoy your weekend.
